In Buddhism we call Enlightenment the natural state. But with billions of human beings on Earth thinking and acting, it is difficult for us to even quiet our mind. We are all incarnate Buddhas and we seek our own innocence. Find out how we can become more aware of our true nature and reside in the natural state.
"The universe is actually alive. It is intelligence -- an intelligence that far surpasses anything that has yet been seen or dreamed or imagined. And you enter into that intelligence. You are it. You're a reflection of it. But to see it all, to be it, to be that totality -- that's what attracts a few of us to perpetually go forward into it. And it's neither moral nor amoral, good nor bad. It's not an achievement. It's just what you're drawn to. We're drawn back to the sea of eternity ... and along the way there are places you can get stuck." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"There are two forces at work in the universe -- unity and diversity. Unity is enlightenment. Diversity is illusion or maya, ignorance…. So we could say that, when you step out of enlightenment -- you could say out of grace, if you’re religious -- we step into the world of diversity. We see things as separate…. So then, your journey is to unity, and you need to think more about unity and focus on it. How do you go about perceiving unity? Well, when you stop thought, that’s unity. Thought is diversity. Where else will you find unity? You’ll find it first and foremost in your heart -- in love. Love is the strongest power in the universe. Love is unity." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
“In order to practice magic, you need only one thing -- awareness. We have other selves that are not of this world, of this time, of this cycle. We are ancient beings, evolving forward and backwards simultaneously; we are not structured in time. We are eternal travelers, eternal voyagers -- appearing to be here when in fact we are somewhere else. And when you can contact yourself in that other place, when you can open up a kind of an inter-dimensional phone line between yourself and your various selves, when you become aware of that, that’s when magic begins. You enter another world -- a world of dreams." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"There are different networks that work the galaxies, the universes. I am part of a particular net -- Enlightenment. There are other nets. A network is a group of beings who travel through time and space and dimensions together. A network is a tribe, bound together by secrets that exist in other worlds.... The network of enlightenment is the electronic tribe in this world … those of us who are here, who incarnated in this world, join together, and we use the electronic technology to consolidate us and give us strength." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
A Special Note from Rama: "This message is addressed to those of you who are part of the network, the tribe of awareness. Those of you who seek to find yourselves. You lie in other dimensions. You live there. This is only a small fraction of your being that's here in this body, in this time and space, on this planet."
"So my recommendation is -- if you seek to practice kundalini yoga -- to meditate, of course, and you can meditate on the different chakras and feel what that's like. But what will really release the kundalini is something much simpler and more effective, in addition to meditation techniques, breathing techniques, and so on. And that is by creating a stillness in your life. This stillness will come about through deep caring and introspection. It will come about slowly and then quickly. It builds in momentum." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Mysticism is the study of energy, the study of power. Power itself is simply a word to try to describe attention, awareness. Power is the ability to translate, that is, to shift from one level of attention to another." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"In mysticism, the first course of action is to do away with imprinting -- our own conditioning and the conditioning of others. Then we need to be re-imprinted but in a different way; we need the imprinting of enlightenment, of freedom, and that comes through our association with a higher being. So classically what occurs is one meets a teacher. And that being will teach you how to overcome your old imprinting by changing your way of life and by teaching you the ways of power -- how to store it, collect it, amplify it, how to stop losing it. By bringing enough power into your life, you will gradually erase or actually overcome your imprinting." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
”Our subject tonight is transcendentalism -- the awareness of eternity in the present.... As I’m sitting talking to you, I’m watching a squirrel. I’m sitting here in the Dodge van and I’m watching this cute little guy hop back and forth, apparently oblivious to our technologically-oriented civilization. He’s out there in his world, a world of trees and nuts and wind and rain and sunshine -- completely unaware of the things that we are aware of, and, of course, we are unaware of the things that he is aware of. So transcendentalism suggests that we are aware of our world …but we are completely oblivious to a world that may be right next to us. Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
